Happy Friday, peeps! It's supposed to feel a little more seasonal this weekend, after our warm Halloween, so I thought I'd share a couple cards I made recently with the beautiful Toile Tidings DSP. The first one uses the Winter Woods tree and a sentiment from the hostess set, Greatest Part of Christmas:
I covered the DSP with a layer of vellum; it still allows those wonderful woodland creatures to be seen, but it also allows the tree to stand out! I diecut the sentiment with a Stitched Nested Label die and cut off the left side. After adhering the diecut tree, I sprinkled it with the new Ice Glitter...a lovely effect!
I used the same pattern for my second card, but left the vellum off. Instead, I used my Stamparatus to stamp this beautiful large sentiment at the bottom in Shaded Spruce, then left the DSP in the same position, cleaned my stamp off and stamped again with Versamark ink. I then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder...wow, it really popped!
It looked a little plain, so I stamped some of the pine boughs, diecut them and adhered them to the flourish of the "C" with a linen thread bow...I like the rustic look, although I think I should have stamped them in Garden Green!! Still pretty though!
And on the inside, another sentiment from Greatest Part of Christmas (what an awesome set this is!) along with a few more pine sprigs:
Trick or treat was questionable with the weather, but the rain held off...my only visitors were Lee and Jackie, whom I hardly ever see any more since their mom drives their school bus! They've grown!!
Ginger and Eden were ready to go in their skeleton suits!
Not too clear a picture, but here is Cassidy...she was ready to go too!
It was so warm, Wayne was in his shirt sleeves....and I saw some places out west had SNOW!! Not quite ready for that yet! Thanks for popping in today!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
